    Thank you for your reports on what happened during the Apollo era. They were very informative.

    I was hoping that my article would stimulate enough interest internally within the NASA LCROSS Public Education team or within JPL Launch/Mission Control to do something similar for the LCROSS launch.  Here's to hopeing. 
    Alternatively, I was also hoping that you SeeSat people had some type of an information launch watch network to develop the information independently.  That does not seem to be within technological reach.  Even so, it's provided me with a good introduction to world of satellite watching. 
    Greg, thanks again for the historical notes. It's important to keep a record of the continuity of these matters.
